Oaklands School is a fully inclusive school with a wealth of opportunities for all learners to achieve their full potential. We are a school which serves the local community and promotes co-operation, responsibility and respect. This is an exciting time in the development of the school. This academic year we opened our new Sixth Form building and we are due to have further extensive building work in the next 18 months as we increase our school roll. This is because of our successes over the last ten years.  Our Progress and Attainment 8 Scores are well above national averages and as a result our Sixth Form is comparatively large compared to the size of our lower school, with many students going on to the top universities to study a wide range of subjects.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, ambitious and outstanding practitioner as Head of Chemistry to lead and co-ordinate the delivery of Chemistry at Key Stages 3-5. Science at Oaklands is a high achieving subject area and Chemistry is a popular subject at A level. The successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher and role model for future scientists, have a proven track record of high outcomes for learners in Key Stages 3 - 5 and will be able to manage and lead a team of dedicated specialists and non-specialists alongside the Head of Faculty.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a high achieving school at GCSE and A level.  We have an outstanding and talented Science Faculty with an established record of fantastic exam performance. At GCSE our Progress 8 scores have been significantly above national average and in the top 20% of schools for three years running (2017-2019). Entries into separate sciences at GCSE are consistently high (Nearly 50%).

At Oaklands we have highly committed and dedicated staff who work very hard so that our students can achieve their high expectations. If you think you can take our Science Faculty to greater heights, we look forward to hearing from you.

We are keen to hear from you if you:-

• Are an excellent teacher

• Are flexible and adaptable

• Are ambitious, hard-working and a team player

We can offer you the opportunity to join:

• A highly committed and dedicated staff.
